I spent the weekend building a new patio. I hadn't thought of grilling lobster! I'm definately putting that on the list. I got the grill with my last paycheck from a second or third job when I could afford to drop it as a reward for years of working twelve days in a row twice a month.
With the right case on munchies and the means to make it happen I would not put it past Jerry to make himself a nice fish taco when he was motivated to do so... could be a parking lot dosed fatty burrito tale just as easily....
Now, back to the patio project. I still need to face the retaining wall with stone, finish burying the drainage system, and landscape and plant grass around the border. I'll grill a beer can chicken waiting on the top soil delivery I think....

I like using the heineken keg cans, the extra wide base provides stability.

Funny, I find beer kegs do nothing for my stability. But then I'm not shoving them up my backside...

Too easy.

Although, having a cold Hollander up your rear is rather enticing, be you friend or fowl.

So you have a fondness for Dutchmen eh?


How low can we go?

Sounds to me like you've had more than one finger in the dike.


But why bring Rosie O'Donnell into it?



Ouch, that's low, even for me.

That's the third time this short week I've had to clean coffee out of my keyboard.

And my nose.

I expect such comments from SDH but not from the wordsmith!! I am sure our desert-dwelling friend will somehow twist this into finding new ways to help the sheep over the fence.

I think our compound-confined compadre is apt to project his own repressed dark desires on to others. Look at the screen name he chose - some dark hollow - speaks volumes if you ask me. Yeah, the sheep gag, I can't wait. Mind you he probably thinks a sheep gag is like a gimp gag for zoophiles.

Have I lowered the tone sufficiently for the day?

We grilled a beer can chicken on Memorial Day. Gotta love it!!!
I did something a little different this time around and it was even better. Usually I just rub the whole thing down with butter and garlic before putting it on the can. This time I marinated the chicken fr about four hours first and then used the leftover marinade as a basting sauce.
The marinade was...
1 part Sam Adams Summer Ale
1 part Balsamic/Basil Salad Dressing
1 part Lemon Juice
4 cloves minced garlic
Fresh Ground Black Pepper

It won't work for a whole chicken but this works pretty well for chicken pieces:

plain yogurt
lime (zest plus juice)
chopped chillies
grated fresh ginger
chopped mint leaves
ground turmeric (teaspoon or so)
garam masala (teaspoon)

I'm hopeless on exact quantities, I usually go by eye and taste, basically it's whatever you fancy for however much chicken you've got - dip the chicken in for an hour or two and whack it on the grill. Squeeze over a little more lime juice when it's done.

Every Sunday Mrs. Mando does a "Dump Chicken" in the crockpot.

Mrs. Mando's Herbed Dump Chicken

1 whole roaster (sized to fit your crockpot)

Water to cover chicken

Stuff chicken with:
1 sprig of curry
1 sprig of Thai basil
2 sprigs lemon verbena
1 sprig of rosemary

Add to the water:
1 cup of Chardonnay (more or less as desired/required)
1 tablespoon of bruised Lemon thyme
A couple of bruised leaves of Syrian Oregano

Start on High for about 3 hours, switch to Low for the next 6. (This is the critical step as all of the calories associated with chicken fat evaporate on Low)

SAVE THE WATER!!!!! It makes superb starter broth for chicken or vegeatable soup. It is also tasty poured over rice after it has been reduced just a little bit.

Or you can be a Neanderthal like me and just dunk rolls in it.

FWIW, all of the above herbs are growing like batshit in the Square Foot Gardens right now. There's nothing like using food that is literally minutes old and from your backyard.

Now that does sound like a very tasty combination of herbs. I can't compete in any way with Mrs Mando's herb garden but I do have marjoram, mint, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme (is there a song in there somewhere?) growing here. And you're absolutely right - picking produce from your garden is a great way to make you feel that life is absolutely grand in every way.

that will work great for a whole chicken if you butterfly the chicken. Many videos online on how to butterfly.

Try slipping some lemon slices or crushed garlic under the skin. Mmm Mmmm Good!
